Cherished Number Plates
The term cherished number plates traditionally would be associated with old dateless car number plates that have been on vehicles for many years. However these days the term now includes the more recent current style registration for example DE51 ELT.
Cherished registrations are becoming the must-have accessory for all new car owners. Nowadays people want to stand out from the crowd and are investing in cherished registration numbers. More and more of these registrations are being sold during our current economic situation as they are deemed as a sound investment.
Cherished number plates are also a popular way of advertising companies. One of the best known examples is Pimlico Plumbers, a plumbing company based in London. Pimlico Plumbers have cherished number plates on each of their company vehicles. Each of the number plates relate to their business, the following are examples of registrations they own:
LO02 OLD ... RAD 5 .... B19 TAP ... GAS 6 ... 8 WC ... 80 G ... S11 OWER ... 8 WC ... X1 EAK ... BOG 1 ... GA51 EAK ... LO02 LOO ... DRA 1N ... WC 55 ... LAV 1 ... HA51 EAK ... LO02 TAP ... G2 LOO ... FLU 55H
Other industries that benefit from cherished registrations are Coach Companies and Haulage Companies. These companies tend to purchase consecutive registration plates for example:
TIG 7111 TIG 7112 TIG 7113 TIG 7114TIG 7115TIG 7116TIG 7117TIG 7119
The main reason they choose consecutive cherished number plates is that they look better on their convoy of vehicles, as well as getting their company recognised
